Plot: Seo Jin Woo (Yoo Seung Ho) has the condition of Hyperthymesia which allows him to remember almost every day in perfect detail. To prove the innocence of his father before the death sentence is carried out, Jin Woo becomes a lawyer. He struggles to prove his father’s innocence, who begins to lose his memory due to Alzheimer’s disease.

Zoom into characters: Jin Woo remembers everything clearly, including exactly how he loses half of his family after they got into an accident. With only his father and him left, they treasure each other and lead a happy life until his father is framed for murder. As they are poor, it is easy for the rich Nam Gyu Man to put the blame on his father. What makes matters worse is that Jin Woo’s father cannot remember anything about what happened that night due to Alzheimer’s disease. Park Dong Ho, a gangster lawyer who wins cases by all means decides to help defend Jin Woo’s father after seeing Jin Woo’s determination but at the last minute he purposely loses the case for his uncle who is like a father to him. Lee In Ah is a law student who believes in Jin Woo’s father innocence and supports Jin Woo when he is down. After Jin Woo’s father is convicted, they go on separate ways and she works towards becoming a prosecutor who shines light on the truth.

Remember-war of the sons quotes (Korean Drama)

I was an attorney who could remember everything. It was my ability as well as my disability. Because of the memories, I was happy and sad at times. Although memories are lost, the fact that I existed does not.

The best compliment to be given from a lawyer to another lawyer is “Please represent me.”

~Seo Jin Woo


It is so easy to hate a powerless people. Can’t people see the truth?

Because of this trial that you consider to be a game, someone’s whole life has collapsed and his son’s too.

~Lee In Ah


Our deal is not over.

Don’t trust me anymore but have trust in my actions.

~Park Dong Ho


I am the law! I am Nam Gyu Man!

I will kill you! (haha)

~Nam Gyu Man


It isn’t your enemy that makes you lonely, it is your friends. I was very lonely because of you.

~Soo Beom to Gyu Man
